I like it. Now CB, OL or WR at #22. Right now, I want Joe Staley.

Agreed! or trade down for a DT. But we might be able to get Meachem at 22. Honestly, I think we'll get the BPA which falls under the positions needed listed above.

I threw up when I saw this thread, but I guess I can deal with that. Hope we still take Reggie if we can, but it looks like another year of giving up the deep ball.

Maybe next year.

Yep, BPA. Isn't a single position a rookie could come in and start unless an injury happened.

I actually had not thought about that. WOW.

Time to make our move to trade up for Branch.

Thank you. Now everyone is seeing the light! WE HAVE NO HOLES!

Super Bowl bound baby.

Oh and it is only a 1 year deal, we could still draft Nelson...

It's a good move. At #22 we still can draft somebody like Nelson (if avaliable) because they can learn behind him. I really didn't want to have another rookie start at S because Watkins was bad last year. Now this is perfect and very cheaply too.

Watkins made mistakes but was not consistently poor. Roy was just bad last year and was consistently poor.

I just don't think this solves much other than Jerry signing a boy from his alma mater.

Watkins is our future at FS. Can't you read the writing on the wall? Hamlin is just a stop gap this year for Watkins to learn and get confidence, then Watkins comes in and owns.

This is a very, very good move. I was dreading hearing this news earlier, because I thought he would be getting a contract in the 5yr/25m range. But to get a player of his quality for that kind of chump change......just wow. He is a little more of a SS than a FS, but he is a lot better in coverage than some give him credit for. He was playing opposite Michael Boulware for much of his time in Seattle, who is a straight-up in the box safety with very limited coverage skills.

I love it. However, that doesn't mean that it necessarily solves our problems. What it does do is give us a solid, experienced veteran that won't absolutely kill us back there, while also providing an opportunity for Watkins to step up and take over without having a ton of dead weight cap money on the bench.

When I read the headline, I thought "wow, here's our version of Adam Archuleta", because I simply assumed he would get big money. But the paltry sum we paid him is what turns this from a headscratcher to a definite hit.

Excellent move. Props to the Joneses.

just think rocky boiman $1m
$1.75 for fabini
$3m/2 years for keith davis

this looks like a bargain

but can dallas keep 5 safeties on the roster(the tony parrish spot) or is abram elam gone?

One year deal? I guess it's an audition. So you know he'll play his ass off for a bigger deal. So that pretty much takes care of our BIGGEST needs, so a CB or OLB in the 1st won't bother me much anymore.

They sure as hell will bother me. Either draft an O-Lineman, still draft reggie nelson, trade up for branch, or trade down for tyler. If we don't do that it would be stupid. Or drafgt Robert Meachem. Henry is now staying at CB, so CB because a 3rd o r 4th round need, and we just draft 2 straight OLB's, were aren't drafting another 1, even if Carp moves inside. Not to mention Burnett.

Oh and if there was any question, Hamlin will be playing FS:

Jerry states it right in the beginning of the Press Conference.

That would be ideal since he's the answer for us at FS.

By the way, TNew, Jerry Jones said in this press conference that he sees Ken Hamlin as a long term player on our defense.
